Chiswick Albion Battle For Three Vital Points
West Middlesex Sunday Football League Premier Division - Twickenham Rangers 1 Chiswick Albion 4
Chiswick Albion battled away for three vital points against a lively Twickenham Rangers side also hungry for a win. The Albion have been restricted to only three matches in the last three months, but looked in better shape than expected. Both sides created a couple of early half-chances but the keepers dealt with them with ease. Albion had to draft in Robert Dawson between the sticks as regular keeper Richard Ireson was injured. A couple of others fell by the wayside, one a victim of St Valentine duties, a new excuse I can add to the list complied over the years. Those who did show up though put in a decent performance, and the Albion were just about in command throughout.
Wozniak took a great first touch and placed his shot just inside the post. Rangers were making inroads, but Matty Wozniak and Oggy Soskic were in solid form. Ben White did well to restrict a Usain Bolt type winger who was too quick for his own good. Anthony Weekes, Albion own speed merchant needed to double up on occasion to keep him at bay. Rangers did hit the crossbar with a fluky shot but the Albion were in the ascendancy. It looked that Albion were about to go three up when Adam White chipped the advancing keeper, only for a defender to hook the ball out of the gaping net.
